John Bindon emerged from a poor, working class London childhood and fraternised with the Krays and the Richardsons, but eventually turned his back on crime to play major parts in films such as Mick Jagger?s Performance, The Who?s Quadrophenia and Michael Caine?s Get Carter. . His story reads like the plot of a movie which Big John himself might have landed a part in. Usually typecast in tough-guy roles, his on-screen persona was chillingly close to the real-life one. Big John?s nickname came from his status as a legendary sexual performer, so it was no surprise that his encounters with stunning women, led to numerous high profile relationships. Bindon is an incredibly well known figure and has the same legendary status as Lenny ?The Guv?nor? Mclean, and this book should have the same popular appeal.
